#DearZindagi A Letter to My Life..

“I am writing a letter to life for the #DearZindagi activity at BlogAdda“.

Hello Dear Zindagi,

With aim of writing a letter to you, I recalled few lines from a poem written by famous poet Gulzar :

Hai lau zindagi, zindagi noor hai
Magar ismein jalne ka dastur hai...

Ravayat ye hai ke zindagi gehna hai
Ye heera hai aur, ise chaat-te rehna hai
Ke lamhon mein marne ka dastur hai..

Adhoore se rishton mein palte raho
Adhoore se saanson se chalte raho
Yuhin jeenay jaaney ka dastur hai..

Hai lau zindagi, zindagi noor hai..


How true is that!

My trek so far has been absolutely normal with few ups and downs. And I feel these crests and troughs give a person reasons to live and look forward to every coming morning.  Dear life, with this letter I want to convey my feelings and warmth about this journey over which I am going with you.



Dear life, you gave me most caring parents of this world, who never disappointed me and never failed me when I needed them.  I witnessed a beautiful childhood which was full of fun and enjoyment because of a younger sister and many cousins.

Dear life, you gave me the chance to prove myself as hard working kid who always tried to make her parents and teachers feel proud. Because of your desire, I could break rules of that conservative society who used to support caging girls inside the home. I came out, pursued my professional studies and now doing an ideal job.

Dear life, I can’t thank you more for giving me such a nice husband. You know well that early on our marriage, we faced many hardships and nearness challenges.  But 'we were in love' and soon we realized that those few gloomy and backstage moments eventually made us good performers on front site. My life, you have seen me crying and laughing at the same time. But the best part is, you never let me feel hopeless and that’s why I am living best years of married life now.

Dear life, what can be best than giving me a chance to become a mother. Motherhood has made me a complete woman, really. You gave me a jolly boy who unconditionally loves me. It actually feels so good when I see him growing day by day, showing his naughtiness and caring for me so much. The smallest man in my life is the biggest reason for my happiness you know.

Dear life, I have everything I ever desired for. You have given me everything a girl dreams for.  Now it is my chance to say "thank you" from the bottom of my heart for all this. Thanks a ton for making me happy and contended. I wish coming years that you are going to write for me shall also be full of stars and moons. I don’t fear difficult times but I request you to give me enough strength to deal with them. 

Thank you dear life for giving me fee will to love and to be loved, to make my own decisions, to learn from my mistakes, to laugh when I am happy and to cry when I am sad. Thank you once again for giving me all the vivacity of this world. There are ups and there are downs but still for me Zindagi Gulzar hai..

Love you my Zindagi :)

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who..
I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold.
ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life!
I am not the wife who..
I am not the wife who has her biological…

My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert.

From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now

From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns. And I…

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…
